Oh my gosh, you guys. It's the end of July. July! I've had so much going on this month, the last few weeks seem to have gone by in a bit of a blur. I've still found time to blog though (somehow!) and today I'm excited to introduce you to one of my lovely advertisers; Bronagh, of Bronagh's Beauty & Books.
Bronagh is a super friendly, super helpful, super bubbly blogger from Northern Ireland. To help you get to know her a bit better, Bronagh has a list of facts about herself on her "About Me" page, which I really enjoyed reading when I first came across her blog! But to sum up; Bronagh has a doggy (Skylar), and she loves chocolate. She loves to write, and is currently writing fan-fiction. Plus, she has anxiety, but she doesn't let it define her, and I love her for that!

Holiday season is upon us! And whether you're jetting off to sunnier climes (and let's face it, who can blame you?!) or staying local, it's so important to keep your home safe whilst you're away! So here are my top tips!

I'm so lucky to have some amazing bloggers in my sidebar every month. And Kirsty Ralph is one of them! Kirsty has been advertising with me for a few months now, and I've loved having her. I'm a huge fan of her blog, and frequently make time to read her latest posts. And today, I get to introduce you to her in this blog post! And I hope you'll love her blog as much as I do...

It has been a long time since the last installment of my "An Interview With..." series. Almost two months, I think... Bad blogger! I don't know how this series slipped away from me, to be honest. Probably in the same way time has. Who else can't wrap their head around the fact that we're almost into August now? Freakin' August?! Unreal. Anyway, I'm back (hopefully every month for the rest of this year, now!) with another interview with a blogger who I love, and have a lot of respect for; Alex of Angel wings and petticoats! Over to you, Alex...

I meant to do this post in June. And it's now nearly August. Oops? I was reminded to do this post when I came upon my goals page in my bullet journal, and realised how much I'd accomplished so far this year! I'm actually really pleased with what I've achieved in 2016, and there's still time to do more. So today I'm revisiting my 2016 goals, and setting myself some new ones! Let's start with my personal goals...

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I've been learning to drive for a few months now. And with a bit of luck, I'll be a fully qualified driver in time for my birthday in September! So I thought now was as good a time as any to talk to you about my experience of learning to drive.
I was so sure that I was going to be a nervous wreck behind the wheel. I suffer with anxiety in nearly every other area of my life; so why would driving be any different?! The night before, I checked and rechecked that I had the documents I needed for my first lesson, and debated over the best shoes to wear (hah!) But as soon as I got behind the wheel the next morning? Well, I felt okay. I was not confident. Who is on their first lesson?! But I wasn't anxious. And with each lesson my confidence grew.

I had no idea just how gross I was until Friction Free Shaving* sent me their subscription box to review.
Really, guys. I'm so gross. I hold onto the same razor for a month (sometimes more) at a time. Do you know how bad that is? So bad. Bacteria, and all sorts of other nasty stuff, builds up in the blades, so it's really important to change your blades every week. But razors are so expensive, I hear you cry. Believe me, I know. Why do you think I hold onto my razors for so long? (Okay, it might also be a little bit to do with me being super lazy!) But Friction Free Shaving have the solution.
